    Questions about ImageWriter II

    You can use normal paper in the Imagewriter II if you're printing one sheet at a time. Most of the printing I've done with the IW 1 & 2 has been with regular paper

    Less than bright

    I picked up a 867mhz QuickSilver because it was advertised as having a SATA card and the price was less than I would have paid for the SATA card alone.. No drives though. I installed an ATA drive off my other QS as well as a SATA drive. Booted the machine and installed OSX on the SATA drive. Then booted off the SATA drive. Next I installed OS 9 off a CD. When I tried booting OS 9 off the SATA drive it went as far the OS 9 toaster Mac icon and stopped. I tried copying my system from the ATA drive with the same results. The card had 5.3.1 firmware so I tried the 5.1.3 firmware. Same results. Then I tried moving the card and drive over to my 933mhz QS but that didn’t help. Then I stopped for a coffee and my brain started functioning a little better. Of course, no OS 9 driver. Formatted the drive under OS 9, copied everything over and booted OS 9. Everything's working well. Now I have to decide what to do with the older QS. I’ve got way too many Macs and Apple IIs right now. Get rid of it? Pull the power supply and get rid of it?

    What is this

    Could just be that they were having keyboard problems and swapped in this one. One of my acquisitions was a clone with an Apple II power supply and on the lid was an apple II badge.

    Benchmarking SCSI2SD Devices in a PCI powermac

    Haven’t used the ATTO cards in probably 15 years and the first three I tried didn’t seem to work. I’ll put those aside and maybe try them on another Mac before considering recycling them. I’m getting pretty low on ATTO cards now if those are history. Wasted a lot of time on them before I found one that worked. Sonnet SATA card with a SD adapter 20834 KB/s read 19271 KB/s write.

    Benchmarking SCSI2SD Devices in a PCI powermac

    I have a Raizinmonster(CF) and a Fuzinmonster(SD) and was curious about how well they did on the Mac. I’ve been using them on the Apple II. The closest machine to yours I have handy is a 8600 with a 450mhz G3 card and 512mb RAM running 9.1. I don’t have Norton so I tried FWB. The Raizinmonster and Fuzinmonster are in external cases and I didn’t have time to remove them this morning. Will do that over the weekend. Also have a ATTO SCSI card I can install. Also have a Sonnet SATA card I can try. The external SCSI bus is slow but since I only had a little time I thought I’d see how they did on it. I tried a couple of SD and 1 CF card. 16gb SanDisk SD sustained read – 4358 KB/sec Sustained write – 4537 KB/sec 2gb SanDisk SD sustained read – 4757 KB/sec Sustained write – 4114 KB/sec 2gb SanDisk CF sustained read – 4727 KB/sec Sustained write – 4094 KB/sec Picture 8 SD Picture 9 SD Picture 11CF

    There was an old discussion here that got me wondering about formatting.

    What was the SCSI2SD formatted with?

    Benchmarking SCSI2SD Devices in a PCI powermac

    It'd be interesting to compare all the available SCSI devices: the SCSI2SD versions, Artmixes SD & CF adapters, SCM PCD-50B, Acard SCSI bridges and ?

    Apple II Plus Card Identification

    From top Modem card 80 column card serial card 16K RAM Floppy drive controller Parallel printer card
  11. For non SCSI Macs, I mostly used Lacie usb optical drives with Toast in OS9
  12. Those upgrade boards are pretty rare. It’d be easier to locate a 333mhz card. A few people have been playing around with replacing G3 processors with G4s in various machines. Been meaning to give that a try when I have some spare time.

    A2 with weird Display

    I'd probably start by reseating all the chips. That's solved 99% of the II+ problems I've had

    MDD Dual G4 ATX Power Supply swap

    You could pick up one of the power supplies for adc monitors. Less load on the computers power supply and then you can use it with quite a few other macs
  15. You can even get localtalk though the Stealth serial port might be harder to find
